Congratulations to the New Jersey Devils for winning the 2012 NHL Eastern Conference Finals. The Devils defeated the top seed in the East, New York Rangers, 3-2 in overtime last night’s Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. NHL story here. NBC Sports story here. Yahoo story here.
With the Devils winning, I am now 8-6 while picking two more game than played. I spoke too soon about NY vs LA series. But, still remains a true East Coast versus West Coast series. The Stanley Cup Finals start on Wednesday in New Jersey. Schedule can be found here. Games in the States will be on NBC or NBC Sports.
Congratulation to the Los Angeles Kings, the 2012 NHL Western Conference Champions!
With the Kings winning, I am now 8-5 while picking one more game than played. It might look like a NY vs LA series this year. Would that be good for hockey?
